Nigerian Govt scraps post UTME Exam, set 180 as bench mark in JAMB

“One-hundred-and-eighty is given and no institution will go below 180 this year; some universities can go above it, I know Obafemi Awolowo University of Ife, will not go below 200 and University of Lagos will not go below 200, and also University of Ibadan. All these ones stand. But 180 is a bench mark for others.”–Dibu Ojerinde, JAMB registrar.

“As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing. The universities should not be holding another examination”.–Adamu Adamu, minister of education.

With the comments above, Nigeria’s education system may just have undergone yet another seismic shift.

Education minister, Adamu, says the post UTME exams are unnecessary and amount to a duplication of duties.

“JAMB is one of the most active parastatals in the ministry; I expect that policies that would be beneficial to Nigerian students should be discussed at this meeting,” he said.

“As far as I am concerned, the nation has confidence in what JAMB is doing. The universities should not be holding another examination.

“If the universities have any complain against JAMB, let them bring it and then we address it.

“I believe there should be no ground to lower the quality; November. 30 remains the closing date for 2016 admission. No institution should exceed its quota in admission; we will start issuing penalties to defaulting institutions.”
